The Most Talented has shared the stage with Mos Def, the Cocoa Brovas, Mista Cheeks from the Lost Boyz, Masta Ace, and others. He has appeared on an album with Eminem, the Cocoa Brovas, and JnJ Project. He has influenced Lauryn Hill. The Most Talented is of the "Tupac Shakur, Jay Z, DMX" school of music, which contextualizes self-empowerment and respect within the hard-knock life of the streets. But what makes him stand out from his contemporaries is his burning, laser-focused intelligence, his strong sense of self as evidenced by the ease of his own skin, his utter lack of artifice, his economical use of silence, and his complete mastery of himself.
